Do you live in a small apartment where space is at a premium? So much so that everywhere is a squeeze with little room to eat comfortably? Then the answer could be a 3 piece breakfast nook dining set.
They're one of those useful space-saving furniture items that you can fit into those awkward areas that may be under-used.
We know this through our own early experience. Our very first flat had a tiny kitchen. It was impossible to fit in even a small fixed table. So we bought a small drop-leaf table with two stools as a solution. They were cheap and both the table and the stools folded to take up much less room when not being used.
It worked! It fitted neatly into an awkward corner of the room allowing us to squeeze past when preparing meals. We thought it was wonderful - our own dining area!
The range of small tables we've picked offer you a broad choice of styles and finishes.
We made sure to include several models that offer different finishes in that design. That gives you a wider range from which to select your preference that best matches your home decor style.
We believe the prices to be reasonable for both the quality and the practicality of the product. They've been well tested in the real world and are highly praised by most reviewers - all carry good scores in the ratings game.
Of course you can do more than eat at them - they can double as a home office and are great as a work station for hobbies and crafts. Throw a cloth over, stick an ornament on top and, hey presto, you have a feature!
Easy to put together with ordinary tools that most folks have to hand.- from reading through the reviews there didn't seem to be any serious problems there.
They are small enough to be easily portable if you need to store them separately. Their footprint is not much as they don't take up a great deal of floor space and can be tucked out of sight when not in use.
Yet, to us, it has its own homely charm and we guess that might be why it has been a steady seller over the years. That and the innate appeal or real wood - warm to the touch and strong.
Built from a light-colored tropical hardwood the pieces have a natural wood finish and the seats have a light-brown polyester padded cushion. There are two hinged drop-down leaves to increase the usable area.
With both leaves up the table measures a roomy 35 inches in diameter. So roomy, that one user mentioned that it held four standard dinner plates easily and that, in their opinion, four chairs could be fitted under the table when both flaps are raised (unfortunately, chairs for this set are not sold separately). So two people eating at it regularly would have oodles of space to dine comfortably.
Each part of the three items in the set has been robustly constructed from the solid. The makers list the maximum weight as 300 pounds for each piece. For the average person, this set should last for a long time.
Straightforward assembly - bolts and key are supplied. You need to be aware that It comes as a beefy package weighing around 60 pounds. So it's a fair burden to manhandle on delivery.
There is a Proposition 65 warning for Californians flagged on Amazon for this product. We guess this refers to any wood preservative used in the manufacture or perhaps to the Asian wood itself - there is no specific information given in the guarantee.
There is a limited-term 1-year warranty covers this furniture group and a copy of this can be downloaded for any prospective buyer to look over before purchase. Always best to know as much as possible before spending your dollars!
This item does have a high customer approval rating of 4.4 stars averaged from more than 1200 reviewers and that suggests to us that the product is a good bang for your buck.
Even if it's basic it's still something that's comfortable to use and that's probably why it has remained a favorite for years.

Make no mistake about it, although it may look like a Kitchen Cart, it is a multi-functional table where you can prepare and eat food as well as using it as a working surface for hobbies, crafts and other tasks.
Ideal for those really compact apartments where every inch of space is valuable. However, it could be equally be useful in bigger houses say, with a patio or porch. Just run it out on its casters and you have an occasional table for your drinks and snacks.
A mobile kitchen work station that you can eat simple meals at. Easy to move around on its castors, it could be stored or used elsewhere in the home as a need arises. For example, it could be run out onto a porch or patio
It comprises of a table with drop-leaf on one side and stackable square-top stools. With the leaf raised it measures about 29 inches each way with a height of 32 inches including the wheels.
It's made from a composite of solid and engineered wood finished all over in teak. The top is a solid piece - a butcher's block as one reviewer described it. It is also available in a natural finish and there is another model that has a rounded top and round stools to match.
It has two under-the-table drawers for holding small utensils and such and there is a towel rail fitted to one side only. There are 4 castors fitted two of which are locking to keep the table firmly anchored when in use.
It comes boxed for home assembly. Customers say that the instructions are clear and no special tools are required to put it together. It weighs around 57 pounds - worth keeping that in mind if you have to haul it up many stairs.
This model has been a favorite over the years as the star ratings prove.
The overall effect is pleasing and this is reinforced by numerous buyers who, on average, are very satisfied with their purchase.
The three pieces are made entirely from timber which is "sustainably sourced" which is good news to the environmentally conscious folks.
The table has a good-sized solid American Hardwood top measuring 36 inches long by nearly 24 inches wide fixed atop a white-painted timber framework described as "Mission style columns". There is a horizontal bracing bar between the gables which doubles as a stabilizer as well as a convenient foot rest. The two classically-shaped stools have flat circular wooden seats with splayed legs painted to match the table frame.
It's part of a family of kitchen fitments that includes an island and a folding cart. If you have room in your kitchen, these other fitments might be really useful to you for extra worktop area and storage.
They are slightly less robust that some of the other sets we feature. Their weight limits are set at 200 pounds for each item. The stools may be on the narrow side for some folks at under 13 inches diameter.
Supplied direct from the factory, the set comes for home assembly. All the needful hardware is supplied and the job should not cause you any difficulties. Some reviewers claim that they did experience some problems in putting the things together. As the reviews don't always make clear which model in the range they're discussing, it makes difficult for us to discern what particular item they refer to.
From what we can ascertain from reading through peoples' opinions, our featured set does rate well. Although it may not be the cheapest, you do get a solid-wood set for your money.
It's modern looking with shapely symmetrical lines - there's a hint of the Streamline Moderne from the Art Deco movement about the design. It would blend in with any kitchen appliance of that style and period.
It features a beech finish top with silver-painted steel legs that's bright in appearance and, more practical, quick to wipe-clean - good for hygiene in the kitchen area.
It's available in four color schemes - we feature the silver painted metal and natural finish tabletop. All black, black & natural and white & natural are the other choices.
The oval top measures a generous 31.5 inches by 21 inches wide making it handy usable space. It's made from one-piece solid MDF as are the seat panels and all are supported on strong steel frameworks. The table has a handy under-slung storage shelf - ideal for wine bottles if nothing else!
The table legs have double cross pieces fitted for strength and stability - making a weight limit of 176 pounds for the table. The chairs can carry up to 220 pounds each. Should last a long time in regular use.
It stacks tidily with the chairs sliding in at each end with the curved chair-backs dovetailing with the rounded table end - all very smooth and neat in keeping with the elegant design.
